sm: How did you first find out about the Percy Jackson series?
srr: Last year, I won a reading contest at school and got a $50 Barnes and Noble card as a prize. With the money, I bought books 1, 2, and 4. I bought the rest later.
sm: Tell us about the books.
srr: There are 5 books in total, written by Rick Riordan (pronounced “ry-er-don”). They’re about a kid who is half Greek god, half mortal. He goes on different quests in each book.
sm: How did you like them?
srr: They’re the best books ever!
sm: Even better than Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia?
srr: (nods his head with his thumbs up)
sm: Why are they better?
srr: It’s because they’re funnier.
sm: How is the last book going so far?
srr: It’s going good, even though I only just finished chapter 1. It was the best chapter in the series so far.
sm: How do the books make you feel?
srr: It helps me learn about Greek mythology.
sm: What age do you think is a good time to start reading these books?
sm: But you’re 9!
Well, I don’t understand all of it. Maybe, you should be somewhere between 11 and 99.
